A view of Chaweng beach from Matlang Resort on Ko Samui, in the Gulf of Thailand. I liked the bent coconut palm here. Shot on an overcast day.

Hi Chris,
this would be a good place to be right now, still snowing in Canada.
Very nice beach scene, very well captured. The colors could have a bit mor contrast, but the composition and the scenery is lovely.

Hi Chris,

The chosen POV is excellent, very good composition and good lighting for an overcast day.
Happy Easter,

Hi Chris,
Excellent POV with the wall and the bent coconut palm tree on the right. Great sharp details and colors for an overcast day. Good work. Congrat.

nice image of thailand
give me a good feeling of holiday and nice depth using the fence

Why haven't you invited me to visit this wonderful place with you ??? Oooohhh, I love to be there now, sooo beautiful.
Hi Chris, I hope you had wonderful days there, I have to wait for my next Thailand-trip until April 2008 ;-( But it will be warm this weekend also here in Germany, so I will go outside with a coconut-drink, sit in the sun and think of Thailand ...

Hi Chris,

A great POV with a strong tropical feel! I wish I could enjoy a Mojito there... :))

Hi Chris, A wonderful perspective of this good-looking Thai beach. Well created and presented. TFS. Murray.

Light is some strong! Hiding some detail a little but it please in the overall compo! Have the feeling to see a vaporous scene!

Bonjour Chris...
Je mets mon maillot et j'arive....
Superbe plage et belles couleurs.
Bravo !

Life is bad if we see this
Palms, white beach and I hope cocktails

Hello Chris,
